Pop stars are putting out the holiday tracks - hear 'em here!

Katy, Meghan and Blake & Gwen are feelin' festive

Katy Perry - Cozy Little Christmas

Capitol Records - Universal Music Group

Tis the season for pop stars and their labels to squeeze out a little more coin from us with festive holiday tracks, y'all! Leading the parade here are the cutesy couple Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. Actually, the single, "You Make It Feel Like Christmas" came out last year, but Gwen's full holiday mixture of standards and new songs makes it's full-blown debut this year. Plus they shot a cute video for the year-old single. Watch!

You can listen and/or add the whole album to your Spotify account HERE, if you'd like. 

Not to be outdone, Katy Perry dropped a cozy little track, entitled "Cozy Little Christmas." It's an Amazon original, so you'll have to head HERE to listen to a sample of it and/or buy it outright. It's worth the click-over, to be sure. The hook gets you - " I don't need diamonds, no sparkly things ... 'cause you can't buy this a-feeling ... "  Here's hoping this marks Katy's transition back to what made her a household name in the pop music industry - playful and borderline sweet and sultry.'

But hey, making an ORIGINAL holiday track that has that lasting " 'All I Want For Christmas' by Mariah Carey" staying power ain't easy. So Meghan Trainor's taken the "eh, I'll cover 'White Christmas' " route. Definitely weren't enough of those, right? Still, Meghan puts her own "touch" on a classic. Take a listen to that HERE via Spotify. 

Should any more festive tracks drop, I"ll keep you posted!
